Yesterday was my anniversary (21 again), so I took the day off from impulsive my hack cab and went for a wedding anniversary breakfast time.
Now London, England is a international colloquium borough where on earth it's practicable to eat freshly astir every variety of cookery proverbial to man. So what did I have?

Along next to eels, oysters were sometime eaten in echoing quantities and regarded as "poor man's food". Since then, the lowly oyster has reached the elevated state of epicurean substance and now eels are besides enjoying a revitalization.
In onetime times, eels utilized to come up from the local London rivers. But now they are above all caught on the Norfolk Broads, to the northeastward east of London, and shipped across the North Sea to Holland to be processed, past arriving at their traditional home: the old London pie and pulp beauty salon.
